I try so hard to find the good in things that I’ll rarely rate a movie 1 star.

    1) Okay, now I’m officially excited for phase four. 

    2) There’s no other way to start this review for me than to mention the outstanding stunts and action sequences. The fight choreography is simply stunning, bringing John Wick to mind… except with a balletic grace that makes it easily the best I’ve seen so far this year. From the bus in the beginning to the original yet familiar fight on the side of a building, this film…

    1) Ugh. Kill me. I was fully prepared for this to just be Oscar bait. I did not expect it to feel like a punch in the chest 😭

    2) This film is shot so cleanly and with such clarity, which is in complete juxtaposition with the lead character’s state of mind. It has such a simplistic feel to its framing, and it feels so necessary because the story is so stressful to witness. So hard…
